Trivia / Freddy Pharkas: Frontier Pharmacist

  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: The game is one of the few Sierra adventures that haven't turned up on GOG.com.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Freddy wasn't originally supposed to be a pharmacist, but a simple farmer. When pitching the game to Ken and Roberta, Al slipped up his words, mixing the word "farmer" with "rancher" and somehow amalgamated the word "pharmacist".
    • According to Josh Mandel, he proposed the idea of making the game less risque, wishing to break the niche Al had created with the Leisure Suit Larry games and make the game more family friendly. However, Al struck this idea down. This would later become Hilarious in Hindsight when Al developed the family-friendly Torin's Passage two years later.
